Body contouring after major weight loss is performed to remove loose skin and remaining fat. It also repositions and reshapes underlying tissues. The goal is to look better and feel comfortable with your new body.
Losing weight is an awesome accomplishment, but many patients feel distressed because they are left with excess or loose skin that will not tighten up no matter what they do. This excess skin and hanging fat cause all kinds of difficulties. These include problems with sweat-trapping and rashes, difficulty exercising, difficulty with clothes fitting, and intimacy issues. Patients are often uncomfortable being undressed with their significant others. The issues can affect self-esteem and even lead to depression. The good news is that all of these common problems after massive weight loss can be improved with plastic surgery.
